This produces a image around 725 MB. You can pick and choose what
locales you want to include to reduce the size. If you want to make say
Tamil the default, there is a couple of simple directives to add,
# change default locale
# change default timezone
For other locales, refer
# yum install spin-kickstarts livecd-tools
# setenforce 0
# livecd-creator --config=fedora-10-india.ks
Having a local mirror is very useful, otherwise you have to wait for the
downloads for a long time depending on your bandwidth, atleast for the
first run. Let me know if you got more questions. Please keep questions
on the list.
Don't know if you folks have considered this, but it should be possible
to parse the spec, compare the manual build requires specified with the
one auto generated by this tool and post the diff as a suggestion to the
packager as part of review-o-matic. Does that make sense?
We've finally got things in motion for the OpenWeek..
Discussions is on at the forums (http://forums.lugmanipal.org) as well
as the mailing list..
We have planned a "Hackathon" on the last day.. It is meant to introduce
people to the idea of Application Development.. Since it is the first
time, it will probably just be us changing a few things in some app to
show people how and what can be done..
We are holding a workshop on Python before the open week..
so, Can someone please suggest a simple application written in Python
that we could use in the hackathon.. We need the simplest possible so
its easy for people to understand what is going on..
We have a stock of DVDs with us (susmit) being donated to support
India FreeMedia by Santosh, now we can create smaller chunks and
distribute them to places where they are needed most, we can start
with LocalContacts, please let me have your names if you are willing
to anchor distribution at your end and with the number you are
expecting for coming month(s) [ your responsibility will be to burn
and give away discs to requests coming from your cities and/or if you
are willing you may also ship to nearby places ]
Please reply in format
Expected Count :
after getting the picture we can move ahead and distribute the DvDs..
Can anyone please send me a high resolution version of the three
screenshots embedded in the frontpage of the attched picture, namely a
plymouth screenshot, a login screen picture , a desktop screenshot.
Never mind the stretched design..I shall take care of that.
Thanks for your help.
FTF and gpl-violations release a guide to reporting and fixing licence
2008-12-08, Zürich, Graeme West, FSFE
FSFE's Freedom Task Force (FTF) and GPL-Violations.org today released a
guide to reporting and fixing licence compliance issues.
This guide will help users and developers to deal with license violation
reports. It explains how to make a report, what information is useful to
include, and offers suggestions for how projects or businesses can deal
with reports once they are received.
The guide is released as part of the strategic partnership between the
FTF and GPL-Violations.org, who work together to improve licensing
awareness and compliance in Europe. It is located on the new FTF
g/ftf, along with information on how
projects and businesses can get help with understanding Free Software
licences. Translations into several European languages will be made
available during coming weeks from the FTF website.
"The best way to solve compliance issues is to prevent them happening in
the first place", says Shane Coughlan, FTF Coordinator. "We work to
support this by educating the community at large. When problems do
occur, we want people to be able to share information and resolve them

something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain. Remember when I took that home winemaking course, and I forgot how to drive? - Homer
